“ON HOLY GROUND TRAILER”

The Great East End Treasure Hunt

London –The Great East End Treasure Hunt: A quest for a long lost past Sunday 6th April
from 2pm

Stumble around the East End and watch the Jewish history of this area unfurl with
musicians, treasure clues, actors and bagels. Sign up in groups to discover some
stories, fall upon soup kitchens, bump into klezmer players and search for
disappearing
synagogues.

We’ll scatter signposts, clues, artists including performer Judy Batalion, live
musicians and hidden items along the roads of the East End, taking you on a two
hour tour around a Jewish world that has all but vanished.

The afternoon will finish at Corbett Place for tea, drinks and live music from
She’koyach.

Chicago Public Library Jewish Music Archive

A public library collection whose primary donor, Cyril Robinson, has traveled to worldwide Jewish music events since 1997 to record live performances, interview musicians, and gather related material. This archive includes sound recordings, and digital and physical objects. “A special emphasis of the collection is klezmer, a distinct musical genre based on traditional Jewish folk music. Unique recordings of live performances, lectures, and masterclasses from worldwide music festivals and venues provide many examples of contemporary klezmer bands and Jewish musicians. Recorded interviews also document these musicians’ individual oral histories and personal experiences with Jewish music and Jewish life.” All this makes many of these items unique to the study of contemporary American Jewish culture. An online inventory gives the depth of the collection and an alphabetical list of interviews refers to full citations in the inventory.…

Orthodox Singing Show –Men Only!

“Israel in Three Anthems” Lecture at CJH

Ha-Tikva, L’Internationale,
and Yerushalayim shel Zahav:

“Israel in Three Anthems”

A talk by Dr. Michael A. Figueroa,Β 

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Discussant: Dr. Brigid Cohen, Assistant Professor of Music, New York University

Monday, November 28, 2016 at 7pm.
Center for Jewish History
15 West 16th Street
New York, NY 10003

Admission is free. Please RSVP to info@jewishmusicforum.org

This presentation addresses three anthems that have helped shape Israeli society: β€œHa-Tikva,” β€œL’Internationale,” and β€œYerushalayim shel Zahav.” In light of three ideological facets represented by these songsβ€”liberation, solidarity, and territorialityβ€”Dr. Figueroa will discuss what constitutes an anthem in Jewish and Israeli history, theorizing a mode of performance he calls the β€œdeclamatory style,” in which vocal gestures that blur the distinction between speech and song portend the political value of musical performance.
